Striker Eduardo Vargas was presented on Monday evening as a Valencia CF player, having passed his medical at the club the same morning.
At the Mestalla VIP box, the Chilean –who arrives on loan at the club through to the end of the season- was officially unveiled by VCF President, Amadeo Salvo, and General Sporting Manager, Rufete.
Speaking about the new arrival, Salvo told the media that: “Vargas is a world class player. We are sure that he will have extraordinary results here.”
Rufete added that: “The most important thing is that he wanted to come here. We hope to both benefit a lot from this deal. Vargas wanted to come here, and we thank him for arriving at this time.”
The event was also attended by Valencia CF’s first ever Chilean player, Juan Catafau, who posed with Vargas after the new VCF player had said the following words to the press:
“Valencia CF is a beautiful club and institution. I would like to stay here for a long time and I hope to give my all on the pitch to help this great team move forward. I can see that the squad are united and will give me all of their support. I trained with them today and was very happy with how it went. I feel good right now, and have come here after a few days training with the national team. My teammates from Chile have told me that my football will be successful in Spain.”
Vargas will be available for the upcoming La Liga match against FC Barcelona, against whom he may make his debut in Spanish football.
